Shanny the key tonite?

January 12, 2006


Brendan Shanahan hasn’t scored in 8 games. But as Mike Babcock said, he showed signs Tuesday of snapping out of his slump–and perhaps silencing certain fans who think his back is ailing him again.

Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg, each scoring seventy percent fewer goals at home than on the road this year, might want to choose tonite to reverse that trend. Babcock will tinker with his lines again, moving Zetterberg to left wing on a line with Datsyuk, which allows Robert Lang to go back to center.

Via the Detroit Free Press:

“We have three quality centers,” Babcock said. “I’ve got room for two of them. And the guy who plays on the wall the best is Hank. So even though he was playing great down the middle, that’s what we’re doing.”
